Item description for Counseling Depressed Women (Counseling and Pastoral Theology) by Susan J. Dunlap...
Overview Each volume in this series focuses on practical ways to respond to a serious and difficult pastoral concern within clinical and congregational settings. Offering fresh insights from pastoral theology, each volume integrates the most up to date information in psychology and the human sciences. All the authors write out of firsthand counseling experiences as well as the most recent research on their topics. The result is an invaluable series for counselors and pastors who regularly face tough issues as they offer care to clients and congregants.
Why do women suffer depression twice as often as men? Susan Dunlap integrates findings from biology, psychology, sociology, and theology to discover that powerlessness is a cause of depression. Based on this understanding, she develops a pastoral theological response to bring hope to depressed women.
The purpose of the Counseling and Pastoral Theology series is to address clinical issues that arise among particular populations currently neglected in the literature on pastoral care and counseling. This series is committed to enhancing both the theoretical base and the clinical expertise of pastoral caregivers by providing a pastoral theological paradigm that will inform both assessment and intervention with persons in these specific populations.
